Assesses figural short-term and long-term memory.
This special ability test assesses memory for figural material with free recall and using a learning paradigm that tests the increase in learning after repeated presentation. The test also makes it possible to test short- and long-term retention and recognition. The FGT thus enables multiple facets of episodic figural long-term memory to be measured. The test is used in clinical neuropsychology.
S1: Standard form
S11: Short form A
S12: Short form B
The FGT consists of several parts. The first part comprises five learning and reproduction runs in which either 9 or 12 figures (depending on test form) are presented repeatedly. These figures always consist of a square area in which one or more lines or dashes have been drawn. Immediately afterwards respondents must reproduce as many of the displayed figures as they can. The second part of the test follows after a short break. This part calls for free reproduction of the figures without any further presentation of them. The third part of the test is administered after a 30-minute break; this involves free reproduction after a long delay and forced-choice recognition of the figures.
approx. 15-20 minutes, depending on test form
This information relates to the pure working time. The interval between the immediate learning and recall runs and the delayed free recall runs can be used to administer other tests from the Vienna Test System.
